Everything great except: restaurant needs new awning in front; pile of debris at front entrance; interior needs repair; sat next to hole in wall (no plaster or paint); saw other areas that need repair and or paint

Excellent Food.
Terrific Service. A bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for. I took my niece there for a nice dinner, we got an appetizer, both got a dinner dish (rather then a sandwich), water and a soda. Bill was $60 - left the waitress a nice tip of $20.
Great atmosphere, live music on the weekends. My husband and I have been a few times and really like it.

We took an 85 year old and a 94 year old to Sunday lunch for their respective birthdays to follow on April 3rd. Our server was outstanding. She was very patient considering all our questions and various dietary issues. The food was excellent. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed their birthday treat and expressed a desire to return. The only problem was the sun shining through the side door into our eyes. We kept moving around the table trying to avoid the glare. At times we could not see each other to talk! Maybe some kind of blind or shade would help.

There was an issue in the kitchen which impacted our meal. The manager and the waitress made sure to keep us informed and that we were ok. The meal was very good. One of my favorite places in Anderson to eat when I am in the area.

Food and service were very good. For an early dinner seating, the bar was a bit more boisterous than one would expect-especially when several dining patrons had children present.

Happened to be in Anderson around lunchtime so chose Doolittle’s. Staff is very friendly and food is okay. The hamburger soup was excellent. The restaurant was very cold. Customers kept their jackets on making it hard to enjoy lunch.

We had been for a bar visit before and brought family for dinner. The food and service were good. There was live music and we could not carry on a conversation. They placed a round table for the five of us and it was a portable table. This would’ve been fine, but Someone had to sit at the end with a bar (of course me) and I could not slide up to the table. I had to sit sideways which was quite uncomfortable.

We are RVers and found Doolittles on the internet. We had Salmon on Friday nite and enjoyed the food and service so much we returned on Monday for my husband's birthday. He had the ribeye and I had the scallops. Dessert choices were lacking to our taste so I can't comment on that but the plates were creative and delicious. Service was excellent and pleasant both nights. The atmosphere is very 'recovered old building' style but clean and appropriately decorated. I would go again.

They were out of lots of menu items food wasnt the best and some things on menu prices were higher than normal.
Even out of sodas on Sunday it wasnt the best service either.
I would go to another place for brunch and make sure you call and see why they have on menu fish and chips desserts and other menu items not available . Also the thighs on appetizer was a chicken thigh cut up sauce not at all what I was expecting no skin and not even close to hot wings .
Dressings are good that is all .
Too expensive and food quality poor

We were in Anderson to visit and decided to try Doolittle’s. There was a car show in the area so we had to park and walk a bit, but it was easy to find. It was a cute restaurant with a good menu. Our server was super sweet and brought us some chips because our meal was taking a long time. She was very attentive and thoughtful. Food was pretty good and my family left happy!
